Notable Higher Ranked Player

Yasmany Tomas: My Rank- 17 ECR- 23

Yasmany Thomas is a bit of a mystery. I feel very confident saying, though, that he won’t match the production of fellow Cuban Jose Abreu in his rookie season. Thomas has power, and that’s largely unquestioned. His ability to unleash it in games still is. Chase Field will give him a shot to make the most of his power since it offers the right-handed batter a 107 park factor for homers, per StatCorner. A 7% increase to homer for right-handed batters isn’t huge, but it’s not negligible.

Notable Lower Ranked Player

Manny Machado: My Rank- 19 ECR- 13

Manny Machado offers me the opening to caution rankings aren’t the be all end all for drafting. I would select Machado in front of some of the third basemen ranked in front of him based on his upside. The problem is, you can’t always chase upside, and his ranking reflects where I think he’ll actually finish the season ranked when also factoring in his downside. His ranking is one I tussled with, and I may go back and change it closer to the season.
